The first rule of business is "will it make money?" and that definitely trumps the first rule of Fight Club, so let's talk about it again. Author Chuck Palahniuk plans to revisit Tyler Durden and the whole gang in an upcoming graphic novel that takes place 10 years after the events of Fight Club, his novel which David Fincher later adapted into the now-classic film. At this point, all Palahniuk will say is that the story picks up with the unnamed narrator's marriage to Marla Singer (played by Helena Bonham Carter in the film) and has a 9-year-old son named Junior. Project Mayhem is still in existence, but has undergone some serious evolutions in the absence of Tyler Durden's leadership. About Tyler, Palahniuk will only say that "Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that's popped into his mind," saying that he plans on using the story to explore mid-life crises ...
You're still not really happy but for different reasons. Also the idea that if you suppress that wild, creative part of you — that Tyler part of you—do you lose the best part of you? Sure, your life is more stable and safe, but is it a better life?
The graphic novel will be published in April of next year ... Discuss
